December Meeting

December Meeting

The December meeting of the photo club will take place at The Victoria Hall, Ash Hill Road on Thursday 15th at 2pm. We meet in the rear hall through the door at the back of the car park.

Our theme for the month is 'Show and Tell'. It is really a social afternoon with a few nibbles and drinks and a chance for everyone to share their best photos of the year.

I will show one of my slide shows - probably one of the shorter ones! I belong to a group of people - not connected with this group - who take a photo every day. We have a list of prompts and all come up with a photo to illustrate that subject. I am writing this on December 7th and the subject today is 'handle'. Sometimes the challenge is just making the photo interesting! At the end of each month, I make my photos into a slide show, add a piece of suitable music and keep them.

We will also be looking at the group's photos of food and drink, which was our subject for the last month. I guess there is plenty of that about at the moment.

We always welcome new members so please get in touch if you would like to come and see us. You are more than welcome to visit and see if you like us.

Above is the photo I took on the day when the prompt was 'smile'. I love this soldier who lives in Ash Museum and who has the most enigmatic smile.

Ash and District Photo Club

The Ash & District Photo Club is a self-help group aimed mainly at retired people who have an interest in any aspect of photography. Members from beginners to those with considerable experience are welcome. We meet monthly, during the afternoon, and divide our meeting into a few parts including a “how to do it” subject, a review of members pictures on a chosen theme and time for problems, gossip and show off.

For our “how to do it” subjects members are encouraged to give a short, informal talk on a subject in which they have an interest. Care is taken to balance these subjects across the range of experience in the club.

Each month we choose a subject for a picture review. Members are encouraged to take up to three photos of a subject chosen by the group at the previous meeting. At the following meeting the club will look at the results and talk about any issues or ideas that were found or used. These pictures do not have to be perfect. This is not a competition and presenting one that went wrong could provide as much useful knowledge to the group as a perfect one. Last year we certainly had fun looking at our pictures on subjects that included; Still Life, Round, Mystery Object or Place, Black and White, and Movement.

Once a year we hold a competition

We meet on the third Thursday of each month from 2-4pm in the rear hall at The Victoria Hall, Ash Hill Road Ash, GU12 5DN. We are a very friendly group and would love to welcome some new members. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
